Salamis adds Alasa con­tainer ship to its fleet

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Salamis Lines re­cently pur­chased the 700 TEU ca­pac­ity Alasa con­tainer ship to ex­pand its fleet, com­ple­ment­ing the Alios Ro/Ro op­er­at­ing the Haifa-Li­mas­solLavrio route.

The Alasa will op­er­ate the Li­mas­sol-Haifa-Pi­raeus route, with both ves­sels call­ing on Li­mas­sol twice a week.

“There is de­mand and the traf­fic to all three ports is not only lim­ited to th­ese three mar­kets,” a com­pany of­fi­cial said.

The com­pany also op­er­ates the highly suc­cess­ful Salamis Filox­e­nia, a 252pas­sen­ger cruise ship built in Fin­land in the 1970s and fully re­fur­bished, that fre­quents on east­ern Mediter­ranean (Egypt, Holy Lands) and Aegean cruises.
